Wesley is currently a member of the 15U Dallas Tigers Baseball Club out of Dallas coached by Linty Ingram, former Hallsville Bobcat.
This is a select baseball team in which players must try out in order to make the team.
Wesley received a call from Coach Jeff Blackstone, former Harmony baseball player and former Harmony baseball coach, that the team had an opening and was interested in him trying out for the team.
Wesley went to Dallas and tried out in February and made the team.
The Tigers finished 3-4 overall in the 16U USA Tournament competing against teams from California and Arizona.
During the tournament, Wesley played six different positions: pitcher, catcher, second base, third base, shortstop and left field. The Tigers’ games were held at the Texas Rangers’, Seattle Mariners’, Kansas City Royals’ and San Diego Padres’ practice fields.
“When we got to the fields I looked around and there were people everywhere, and I was just amazed by how big and stuff they were compared to people here,” said Schoon.
“We played on the minor-league fields for like the Rangers and Mariners and Brewers and stuff and their big fields that they played on for their games were right beside us. We got to play on the ones they practiced on, which was very nice to me because I’ve never played on anything like that before,” he said.
While there, they got to practice on Arizona State University’s Baseball Field prior to the tournament starting. One big highlight was getting to go to the club house at Arizona State University and watching Texas defeat Arizona State in the baseball College World Series.
Last year as a freshman at Harmony, Wesley started at the shortstop position for the Eagles and was voted Baseball’s Newcomer of the Year for District 18-2A . His coaches at Harmony are Ronnie McNeel and Tyler Terry.
Not only does Wesley excel at sports, but he also excels academically. Wesley is the son of Steven and Sheron Schoon of Holly Lake Ranch and has one sister, Kara Jo.
